Dissected aberrant right subclavian artery with Kommerell diverticulum

We present the case of a 54-year-old man with thoracic pain due to dissection of an aberrant right subclavian artery associated with Kommerell diverticulum. Elective surgical treatment was performed.ResumoA artéria subclávia direita aberrante é a anomalia mais frequente do arco aórtico, em 60% dos casos é associada ao divertículo de Kommerell. É geralmente assintomática ou pode apresentar disfagia ou dispneia, devido à compressão do esófago ou traqueia. As indicações para a reparação cirúrgica não foram estabelecidas; no entanto, quando o divertículo de Kommerell é complicado por dissecção aórtica, o tratamento é cirúrgico. Apresentamos um caso de um homem de 54 anos, com dor torácica devido à dissecção de uma artéria subclávia direita aberrante associada ao divertículo de Kommerell. É feito um tratamento cirúrgico preferencial.

(HAMBURG, Pa.) — The spring breezes of 2020 are carrying more than just tree pollen. There’s a whiff of paranoia in the air. For millions of seasonal allergy sufferers, the annual onset of watery eyes and scratchy throats is bumping up against the global spread of a new virus that produces its own constellation of respiratory symptoms. Forecasters are predicting a brutal spring allergy season for swaths of the U.S. at the same time that COVID-19 cases are rising dramatically. That’s causing angst for people who never have had to particularly worry about their hay fever, other than to stock up on antihista...

Dear Carol: My mom, age 79, has had steadily declining health for several years. Arthritis is a genetic problem in my family, so pain is an issue. Besides that, she has severe asthma, so her lungs show a lot of deterioration. The family has handled all of this but now her thinking is getting foggy. She’s resisted moving to assisted living even though we all know that this would probably be best. I work full time, so even though I live in her community, I can’t be with her all the time. I also have teenage kids so even checking on Mom every day is getting to be too much. I know that I’m just getting starte...

Our understanding of the general principles of the polymodal regulation of transient receptor potential (TRP) ion channels has grown impressively in recent years as a result of intense efforts in protein structure determination by cryo-electron microscopy. In particular, the high-resolution structures of various TRP channels captured in different conformations, a number of them determined in a membrane mimetic environment, have yielded valuable insights into their architecture, gating properties and the sites of their interactions with annular and regulatory lipids. The correct repertoire of these channels is, however, org...
